Designed amidst the whirl of Covid, it's just the ticket for those Zoom calls where you want to look professional (but still be comfy, of course). I'm absolutely smitten with its statement sleeves and the cute frill on the chest.
Here’s the lowdown:
Pattern: The Sagebrush Top by Friday Pattern Co.
Fabric: Sewing Gem Fabric Collette
Sewing Label: From The Stash
It has a fairly roomy fit, but I did a few alterations to suit my frame. This usually means a broad shoulder adjustment. I also fancied the ruffle a bit lower, so I dropped it by 3cm. Plus, I did a bust adjustment by adding 1cm to the centre front (probably the simplest bust adjustment you'll ever do!) and left the sleeve open which made it easier to wear in Brisbane's heat.
The fabric is a linen broderie from Sewing Gem that I dyed a lovely light blue. It was actually leftover from a dress I made for my daughter. This should have been a quick sew, but binding all the seams did add a bit of time to the project. Definitely worth the finish. Next on my list is a slinky version for this amazing wardrobe staple!
